Jake Locker Dominates Kirk Herbstreit's 'Herbie Awards'

New, 1 comment

As we noted earlier, the hype train for Washington quarterback Jake Locker is starting to ramp up considerably, especially nationally. The epitome of college football insider is ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit, who takes a short break from his year-round tanning and hair-highlighting regimen to hand out “Herbie Awards” as a prelude to the college football season.

This year, Locker freaking dominates the Herbie Awards. Here are the lists he makes…

MOST EXCITING PLAYERS
1. Jacquizz Rodgers, Oregon State
2. LaMichael James, Oregon
3. Jake Locker, Washington
4. DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma
5. Noel Devine, West Virginia

QUARTERBACKS: DUAL-THREAT
1. Jake Locker, Washington
2. Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State
3. Jerrod Johnson, Texas A&M
4. Robert Griffin III, Baylor
5. B.J. Daniels, South Florida

ULTIMATE GAME-CHANGER
1. Jake Locker, Washington
2. Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State
3. Mark Ingram, Alabama
4. DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma
5. A.J. Green, Georgia

In addition, Herbstreit also names Locker as the first-string quarterback on the “All-Herbie Team”. That might be better than a Heisman right there.
